MDE717 - High Precision Fibre Rotator

High Precision Fibre Rotator   

MDE717   

  • Slotted design for easy insertion and removal of fibre.
  • Full 360° rotation
  • Fine adjustment screw with 5 arc seconds resolution
  • V-block preset on axis with less than 1 µm concentricity error
  • V-block can be re-centred by user
  • Integrates with Elliot Gold™ series flexure stages

Designed for the most demanding rotation and alignment of angular sensitive components. It can be used anywhere that stable, accurate fibre (US: fiber) rotation is needed.

The popular MDE717 fibre rotator is an updated version of the original and offers the same highly accurate rotation in a more stable package.

All accessories are compatible with the Elliot Gold™ series flexure stages. The optical axis height is 18 mm above the platform surface and on the centre line of the location slot. Where necessary a locating tongue forms part of the accessory. A standard clamp system is used and is supplied with the flexure stages and accessory platforms. The clamp set (MDE154) is available separately if required.
